It’s been a short time since we last received an update on Resident Evil 4 VR, but today we got an enormous one. Not only did we get a replacement trailer for the sport, but we also got a release date. Because it seems release day is arising pretty fast, those who own an Oculus Quest 2 don’t have to urge their hands there for much longer.
IGN reports today that Resident Evil 4 VR will be out on October 21st, 2021 – just in time for Halloween. Unfortunately, Resident Evil 4 VR is exclusive not just to the Oculus ecosystem but to the Oculus Quest 2, so if you don’t have one among those VR headsets available, you’re getting to need to sit this one out.
At the instant, there’s no indication if this is often a timed exclusivity deal or if Resident Evil 4 VR will be exclusive to Oculus Quest 2 now and forever. At launch, at least, Oculus Quest 2 are going to be your only ticket to a ride on the Resident Evil 4 VR train.
While that exclusivity will undoubtedly disappoint many, today, we also received a replacement gameplay trailer for Resident Evil 4 VR. Resident Evil 4 VR looks quite different from how we all remember the first Resident Evil 4, with IGN saying that the sport supports both “full-motion movement and teleportation travel.” Players will even be to draw their weapons and items from holsters on their virtual bodies, and because the trailer shows us, a number of the puzzles within the game are explicitly revamped for VR.
If nothing else, Resident Evil 4 VR should bring a singular to revisit to at least one of the top popular Resident Evil games ever released. Search for it to land on Oculus Quest 2 headsets on October 21st, 2021.
